Celebrating European Artistic Craft Days in the Environment Museum of Stymphalia

The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), in the framework of this year’s European Artistic Craft Days (28/3-3/4), on Friday 1 April (at 10:00) organizes a workshop titled “Tiny Nest” for children aged 6-12 in the Environment Museum of Stymphalia.

Drawing inspiration from many other countries and their practice to create nests so that birds can find protection and food, this workshop focuses on the creation of nests. Children will examine constructed and natural nests made with the use of various materials and various techniques. They will realize how much human activities impact the nesting sites and the importance of the nests for the protection and population growth of birds. Then, our young friends will utilize natural and recyclable materials to construct nests for the bird species that are natives or visitors in the Stymphalia wetland.

The European Artistic Craft Days (www.journeesdesmetiersdart.fr) have been established as an annual springtime institution in many European countries since 2002. For the 2022 edition, the theme is “Our Hands in Unison”.

PIOP’s activities this year are dedicated to the memory of architect Eleni Pagratiou-Alexaki, who first organized the European Artistic Craft Days in Greece in 2016.

Participation and materials are free of charge.
Registration is required.

For more information and reservations, you can contact the Museum at the telephone number 27470 22296 (daily except Tuesday, 10:00-18:00).

*Due to special circumstances, setting public health as a priority, the activity will take place in compliance with the prescribed measures.
